Show Number: 1250
Air Dates: December 12, 2012 - December 18, 2012
E-Chievement Award: Micki LeSueur
This week eTown is ready to ‘deck the halls’ with a very special holiday themed show, originally aired in 2011. Grammy Award winning composer and violin virtuoso Mark O’Connor and his band Hot Swing! provide a special Christmas set. Mark began as a child prodigy and is considered one of the most prominent violinists and composers in the world. The LA Times calls him “one of the most talented and imaginative artists working in music – any music – today.” There’s more seasonal music to be had when popular newcomer Matt Wertz takes the stage to share songs from his recent release, Snow Globe. He’s enjoyed a well-deserved rise in attention due in part to having several of his original songs featured on numerous television shows and movies. It’s going to be a festive, time in eTown, full to the brim with great music, stirring conversation and, as always, an inspiring E-Chievement Award story. So be sure to join us; right here, in eTown.
